 once upon a time


THIS THING

 

Speaking to a bloke I know, just the other day.

Anyway the gist of the story was this- thing.

Now we spoke quite awhile about this-thing.

I agreed with him that it must be terrible this-thing.

It really was upsetting him and I was concerned for him.

 

Well you would be wouldn’t you, and him wrestling with,

this -thing. I said to him, tell me what this-thing is. He replied

you know, ach sure you know, "the thing" it’s really awful, 

I went and seen about this-thing, they, oh who are they, you know

the doctors, about this- thing. Okay now what did the 

doctor tell you about the -thing. Well he futtered about with it

then he told me.oh aye and at this point you can imagine how I felt.

 

He told me the-thing was nothing to worry about as

it was  only one of those- things you get once in awhile. Now by 

this point in the conversation I was, to put it mildly going a wee bit mental.

Look forget about the -thing word what in the name of all that’s holy

is "the thing" explain yourself. He looked a bit taken aback at my tone,

then he said, my cough did you not notice "the thing" was annoying me.
